PRP involves concentrated platelets, rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP is in the category of regenerative autologous treatments, which means it comes from your own blood and can stimulate cellular regeneration and tissue repair. Platelets are one of the cells in our blood and when activated, they can release growth factors and other proteins. The growth factors & proteins released by the high concentration of platelets in PRP, in turn, activate stems cells and stimulate cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occur and further aids in tissue repair. Our bodies have a remarkable capacity to heal themselves. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is rich in bioactive proteins to stimulate growth factors and cellular regeneration. It is therapy first used for wound healing, sports injuries, and dentistry. Now it has evolved to help sexual dysfunction disorders including ED and Peyronie’s disease The benefits of PRP were initially used in wound healing, dentistry, and the treatment of sports injuries, but now have evolved to address aesthetic concerns and sexual dysfunction (erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s Disease for men). PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular repair and rejuvenation throughout the body.
The P-Shot is also known as the Priapus Shot is an injection designed to combat sexual dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and Peyronie’s Disease. The P- shot is short for the Priapus shot. Priapus was the Greek god of male regenerative power and sexual health. The shot consists of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and growth factors taken from your own blood. The P Shot helps increase circulation and nerve function, improves the ability to have stronger long-lasting erections. It can also enhance sexual stamina, sensitivity, and orgasms. The P Shot can also help with urinary incontinence.
First, the doctor will draw blood from one of your veins. Your blood is then placed in a special centrifuge designed specifically to separate out your platelet-rich plasma. While the P-Shot is being prepared, your penis will be numbed, and then the P Shot injection is administered. The P-Shot can improve the fullness and function of your erection. We can also add dermal fillers to improve fullness and size since the penis shrinks as one ages.
The PRP injection is performed in our office. It should take about 60 minutes from start to finish but we do usually allow a little extra time. You may drive yourself home after the procedure. After your shot, you can go back to your normal activities. There is no downtime required. You can engage in sexual intercourse the same day as your P shot!
The P-Shot is derived from your own blood, which means there are no synthetic ingredients in the injection. This also means the risk of allergic reaction or rejection is incredibly low.
The P-Shot isn’t the only procedure designed to combat erectile dysfunction. There are many medications available to improve erection strength and stamina, but the P-Shot is not a medication — the P-Shot doesn’t carry the same risk of side effects medications do.
Difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection and/or concerns about penile size, shape, and curvature, with or without pain, can affect one’s self-esteem and create significant stress between partners. Most men will tell you that their penis is the most important organ in their body. Of course, while this is not exactly true for everyday physiologic survival, the proper and reliable function of the penis plays a large role in intimate relationships.
